Chandigarh, December 12

The Haryana State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (HSCPCR) wants the special investigation team (SIT) constituted to investigate the brutal rape and murder of a six-year-old girl at Uklana in Hisar to be headed by a senior woman IPS officer or the matter be handed over to the CBI.

Jyoti Bainda, Chairperson of the HSCPCR, today said that she had taken up the matter with Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar as well as the DGP.

“It has come to the notice of the commission that an SIT headed by a DSP has been constituted to investigate the rape and murder of the six-year-old girl at Uklana. However, no results have come out so far. Keeping in view the seriousness of the matter, the commission desires that a senior woman IPS officer should head the SIT for better results or the probe be handed over to the CBI,” said Jyoti Bainda’s identical letters written to the Chief Minister’s office and the DGP.

A six-year-old girl was abducted from her house at Uklana in Hisar on Saturday and her brutalised body was recovered the next day.

Investigations so far have revealed that she was raped before she was brutally murdered after torturing her by inserting a wood into her body.
